I so get it. I have anxiety, too, and recently refused a standard of care scan before my reconstruction operation because of it. Sometimes you're just willing to deal with the risks of refusing a doctor's advice. I am so glad you've had some shrinkage and I hope your protocol works to shrink down everything completely. Good luck and much love sent your way.
You are correct to preach "Standard of Care" treatment immediately after diagnosis.
aka; Mastectomy, lumpectomy, radiation and hormone + chemo therapy.
This is the path that gives the most success to halt the spread.
Thank you for your response. It was loving and caring:)
I just completed blood work and ultrasound.
Update: Area 3, one of my 3 er+ her- tumors, shrunk by more than half.
I would like to see area 2 and 3 shrink. 67 days on CBD and 70 days later area 3 shrinks?
Did the CBD do this? I do not discuss CBD with my Dr. yet she wants to see me in 4 months, if the results are more shrinking then I will tell her about the CBD.(Full Spectrum Hemp oil -78 mg per day).
Also on Anastrozole for 1 year and 3 months.( no side effects).
I have had 2 suspicious lymph nodes, they still have fat and they may be shrinking too as Dr. says feels less.
For the record the Dr. wants me to get surgery immediately.
Treatment good so far. I feel great when I am nowhere near a Dr. or hospital or hospital machines.
I will state this again and again. I have uncontrollable severe white coat syndrome, as anxiety has been my medical problem since 1986. I have medication when needed. when asked about curing my anxiety through therapy " I have tried everything!" I live with it and now breast cancer too.
Hi Winda! First of all I want to say that I am very happy to read how happy you are with your current protocol. But I did want to comment on your "you can buy time" statement. Anyone should be able to work in collaboration with their doctor to find a treatment they can live with. But that treatment isn't always going to be equal. For anyone else reading this I feel a reminder needs to be stated that breast cancer, like any cancer, can do some unexpected things. For one thing, it can spread through the blood vessels and not just the lymph nodes seeding other more distant areas and years later you wind up with an incurable stage four diagnosis. Doesn't mean it can't be treated and you can't live years after or even finish out a normal lifespan but it's tough treatment and no one wants to be at that point I think it's safe to say. So when you delay surgery or chemo for an undue amount of time you're giving your tumor time to do just that. Spread. There is a celebrity (Shannon Doherty) we have in the states who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She didn't rush to surgery nor did she immediately proceed with chemo. She had an estrogen positive tumor so they decided to try endocrine therapy first. That's not unusual actually and sometimes can result in shrinkage. But it is unusual to use it for more than a year without any other treatment and in reading she did just that. Anyway she did eventually proceed with surgery and a rather harsh chemo regimen since it was in her lymph nodes. She achieved NED and then had a distant metastasis I don't think even two years later and is now incurable. She is doing well but it's a tough road I'm sure and it might have been different if she had a more typical treatment path. Of course it also might have not made any difference at all but the fact of the matter is we do not have a lot of time with breast cancer. It can spread quickly, undetected, lying in wait with maybe one cell or two, and rear it's ugly head years later to start dividing. Again I am so glad to read you are happy with your decision. But it's not recommended and shouldn't be suggested to anyone else.
One year and 3 month of living with this tumor in my left breast. On CBD for 59 days, my blood tests were just completed. Everything is in range I feel great, tons of energy. Next I will go for my ultra sound. If it is still the same or smaller, I am not getting a mastectomy or having my lymph nodes checked.
Will stay on the anastrozole and CBD if it is helping.
I am living with cancer and it is just fine. Praying that next time I write the CBD has shrunk this tumor.
I have two friends that made it through a double mastectomy and they seem to be fine with the decision.
That decision is NOT mine yet.... you can buy time. I am a perfect example of it.
THC can be really powerful and overwhelming. I do not like that effect.
Full Spectrum Hemp Oil or CBD is different.
It has a mild effect because is THC level is below >.3%. You can use 1mL. or 33.33mg twice a day.
The cost of this product for me for 30 days at 2mL. is about $70.00.
It is toxic free, non GMO, vegan and gluten free.
It is really an experiment. I am not scared of experimenting.
My cancer is slow er+ her- stage 2 and I have been living with the diagnosis for over a year. The lump as been there for 8 years, it got worse, really bad after the corona virus vaccinations.
Next year I will get another blood test and ultra sound I will post the results here so we can see if after 96 days CBD has improved my condition.
I also will meet with the plastic surgeon. ( fear just thinking about it!).
I am being treated, they wanted radical surgery RIGHT AWAY and I said NO and changed teams!
Best to all the ladies I offer blessings, courage and hope to all.
I remain joyful everyday.

I have bought CBD oil for my daughter-in-law too help with pain from fibromyalgia and it's works really well.
I've just bought some for my cancer.
I buy it from "Infinity CBD" and 3,000mg is £80 per bottle.
I took l pure cannabis oil for two months after my secondary diagnosis.
Unfortunately it did not cure my cancer. Someone told me that is I did a second round it might work. I did a couple more months on a lower amount but still not cured.
It cost me £2,000 and I could not afford to do that again.
It also knocked me out, I had to time when I took it as I couldn't drive when I'd just taken it. It made me feel very "out of control" as it's so strong and I wasn't comfortable with that.
I'm going to try CBD oil now and see how that works.
Sorry to be a bit negative, I had hoped with all my heart it would cure me.
I take a lot of natural supplements as well as my pharma drugs.
Good luck with your journey.
I started CBD 20 days ago. You are dosing 1 spray (16mg) 6-8 times which means 96-128mg.
I am trying to get the correct dosing for myself. I am living with stage 2 cancer and want to shrink my tumors.
Anastrozole has been my treatment for one year. It is NOT shrink them but keeping them the same.
Your tumors shrunk by 90%? Let see what happens to mine.
The tests they have done with CBD and mice appear to shrink tumors and prevent cancer from spreading.
I guess big pharma is afraid to test a little old inexpensive plant called Hemp.
Hi, the website is Natures Healthbox and I am on “I love CBD “ spray, the 2000ml one which is super strong, I take at least 8 sprays a day… Hope this helps….
Informative & interesting, thank you…❤️
Just because something is natural doesn't mean it's 100% safe. Anyway my concern would be chemotherapy. Does it interfere? I know there are some natural products that can (Echinacea, curcumin, St. John's wort, etc).
Hi, I’m still doing well nearly 2.5 years later ! The website is Nature’s Healthbox, I am on “I love CBD” spray - 2000ml & I take 2 sprays in a morning , 1-2 at lunch & 2 before bed.... I spray on my tongue then wait up to 2 mins to swallow... hope this helps!
Wonderful news regarding your breast cancer and tumors shrinking. I have Metastatic Breast Cancer too and tumors on my breast. How much did you take daily? I purchased the oil and tablet forms. I also read if I spread the oil on my breast it may help. Any advise or wisdom would be greatly appreciated ! Blessings to your success and Health ! Julia
Hi, it sounds like you have a similar cancer to my mums. She is at stage 3 with mets to her spine. Can I ask how you are getting on and what CBD you have used or anything else that has helped?
Hi, The 2000mg bottle costs me £99 which lasts me up to a month, Healthbox where I get it from often have 15 or 20% off deals so I usually buy a few months worth at a time.
hope this helps
How much was your daily high dose of cbd mg?
I don’t understand which doctors thought CBD is harmful re Cancer after all its natural, it’s a plant with the hallucinogenic stuff taken out, iIn what possible way can that cause harm? I strongly believe that in years to come it will be prescribed to shrink tumours (it has worked for me) & also for conditions such as epilepsy ( the United States already do this) MS, joint pain etc....It’s a shame the UK is so behind but hopefully in the not too distant future things will change & this can all be regulated & encouraged.....
Hi, I take the “I love CBD” spray 2000ml, I take 6-8 sprays through the day, definitely worth taking for a few months to see if it helps, good luck!
it’s great news to hear your doing so well., could I ask what mg are you currently taking as I’m a little unsure as to which to try??
probably like yourself, I’m willing to give anything a try to keep my cancer under control.
I have recently been diagnosed with mets to my spine, having previously stage 2.
Thankyou for any advise xx
Two years & 3 months ago I was given up to 3 months to live after being diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer.( Multiple tumours in head, lungs & bones) My 2 adult sons got me onto a regime of healthy supplements & CBD oil ( from Nature’s Healthbox which is a U.K. site) .. Well I am doing very very well, my tumours have reduced or gone by 90% & I feel very blessed.. Is it down to the CBD, well I can’t say for sure but I honestly believe that the strong dose CBD that I take each day has contributed to my life. Six months after my scan results came back my Oncologist was flabbergasted at the results & said “Whatever you are doing Lita just keep on with it”. I have....It has helped me enormously with my anxiety and I know the big C will probably still get me in the end but I feel so thankful for the extra time I’ve been granted..For anyone wanting to know my thoughts... what have you got to lose?
I have mentioned it and he raised no concerns. I also tried to find research studies into it as I had also heard a rumor about the potential for CBD to promote oestrogen production. I found limited studies but most showed beneficial effects. I will try and find the relevant studies as I’ve changed phones since then and can’t access the ones I saved before.
Hi just wondering have you a spoke to your consultant as I had asked and told it wasn't recommended?
I’ve been looking into this recently too.
I read this review of CBD oils and found it very informative. I went for blessed, the medium strength (due to cost!). I think it helps with pain. I have metastases in my bones and was told to take paracetamol four times a day. For the past week I’ve had cbd oil four times a day instead and I think there is the same effect as paracetamol.
There are some studies showing CBD can fight cancer so that is the other reason I bought it. Who knows if it will help!!!
I personally used CBD when I was diagnosed with stomach cancer and it helped me a lot in getting rid of sudden stomach pain, nausea, and vomiting. Now my condition is satisfactory. I don't know if there are alternatives to CDB, but for me, it has become an indispensable tool. Now I use CDB all the time and feel much better. Very often I look for a regular site where I can order another batch of CDBs, and lately, I use https://www.healthcanal.com/brands/cbdistillery-reviews. I hope CBD can help you in treating your ailments, if difficulties arise I am happy to help and answer your questions.
I am about to Start chemo and wondered did you find please
I am in the UK just diagnosed with breast cancer I would like some help with what to buy with cbd also the strength it needs to be to be of benifit
Thank you for yoyr reply. Ive given up on this as in the UK you cant be sure what you are buying as it is illegal so there is no regulation of products.
I also use CBD daily
Thank you x
I do not have cancer, my wife's best friend did. I was very frustrated at the treatment she received and I was not allowed to interfere. I got so mad. Since then I have been researching. I do not accept that no headway has been made in this field for so many years with all the millions of pounds given. I do not have a profile because I am not receiving treatment and I have nothing to ask of anyone here. If you need help in researching anything or are looking for answers that you cannot find I will gladly help in any way I can.
I'm very interested in your thoughts on this subject. Thank you for posting this. I look forward to hearing more from you. I am avidly reading about anything that I can do to help me feel better and live well with my cancer met pals. They are likely to be my constant companions but Im trying to kerp them in their place and limit the damage they do. Maybe even say goodbye to some of them. The cannabis plant looks like it could be an ally for people like me but for some reason its out of bounds in the uk. Still want to find out more though as like to be well informed.
You can see who I am and why I am in this site by reading my profile. Please can you put sone information on your profile. I really value the ability to be 'introduced' to folk who write in here via their profiles and stories. Ok I know they could be fake but I prefer to trust till proved wrong.
Hi, There is a lot of research out there if you look on internet, just on Netflix alone there is a ton of documentaries that delve into the studies of THC and CBD from the Cannabis plant and TedX do plenty of talks on it.
There are white coat peeps in other countries like Israel that have been studying the medical benefits for years of this plant. There are no restrictions on study because the Government do not hinder like in the UK and USA. They will not admit it has any medical value although they have several patent's on its use and allow production of it here in the UK for Drugs export to the USA. It has over a hundred compounds. I think CBD 3 is the one to look at as far as breast cancer is concerned. As it has been proven to cause breast cancer cells to self destruct, ( apoptosis ). There are hundreds of papers on PubMed.com available on medical studies still, although sadly the American Government have taken over 400 plus papers down. Dr Cristina Sanchez phd has lots of info on The benefits of CBD and breast cancer and has been studying the plant for many years and has done clinical trials on CBD 3. You can find her online. Scientists have found that it can dramatically help and halt in many cases the symptoms of Seizures and epilepsy. This is fact, Teresa May was asked by a young boys mother if she could legalise the use because her son was having 300 plus seizures a day and in decline, she did nothing. I have been investigating this for a long time and I know the things I am writing about are true and I can back them up with published papers and studies. I am sorry if anyone thinks I am going on a bit but peoples lives matter. I am not here to mislead anyone, I am here to provide information to people that are looking for it. Good Luck to you all and God Bless.
Ive been looking into the use of CBD and THC oil too. Someone I know takes a 1:1 ratio oil to alleviate treatment symptoms e.g. pain, nausea. She has been living with very pesky mets for some years and been through the mill and back. She is not taking it with a view to influencing the cancer itself though I see some people do see it as being key to their cancer status improvement.
A wee story ... as you may know, a form if it is now able to be prescribed on the NHS in certain circumstances e.g. muscle spasm and pain in MS. A friend if mine, now gone, used to live in fesr as her son procured cannabis for her to smoke to alleviate those very symptoms. She was terrified he would be found out. It's only taken 43 yrs for research to agree with what she knew.
Hello ,I am waiting to start treatment I have breast cancer , it has returned after an all clear of 8 years. I am taking the oil plus Letrozole. I have had a PET scan last week so when I go and see Oncologist again they might start me on zometa and the chemo CDK4/6. Havd had to have 3 teeth out so this has delayed my starting of treatment ,plus I have had to have 2 stents fitted. I take oil twice a day and it is difficult to get but you can get it if you ask around. I believe the ones sold in health shops are not strong enough.what area do you live ?
I recently saw a video clip of a lady called Joy Smith, who appeared on This Morning and spoke of how CBD and THC "cured" her cancer.
On the programme with her was a research consultant on cannabis consumption, who said that although there have been no double blind and controlled clinical trials, and although it doesn't work for all cancers and for all individuals, around 25 years of tissue and animal studies apparently show that the effects of treating cancer with cannabidiol can have remarkable results. It would seem that this cuts off the the blood to tumour tissues, thereby shrivelling them and eventually causing a programmed death of cancer cells.
Setting aside any scientific, legal, ethical and moral arguments concerning the promotion and use of CBD and THC, I note that this lady has started a peition via change org to get it legalised for medical use. There are currently just over 67,000 signatures. There are also other related petitions to do the same, so it is being taken seriously.
Hi Live life
i have just started using CBD oil the legal one I have drops and capsules I al have one to help me sleep only been on it 10 days I take a capsules.e in morning and a couple of drops of the liquid at tea time then around 21 00 hours I take the sleeping one it is called sunset and the one I take at tea time comes in different strengths I went for Blue which is middle I think
the starting one is green and there is a purple and the top one is red
sorry can not help you more at this point
perhaps if I see any improvement I will let you know if I am still around
I feel it is unlikely that anyone will feel able to respond to the question regarding the illegal use of cannibas, because it is illegal. This is an open Forum which can be read by anyone. There are some threads discussing the use of CBD oil. The information they share may be of interest or help to you.
